Christmas Service Schedule

Christmas Service Schedule

We invite all faithful to attend church services as we celebrate the Feast of the Nativity and Baptism of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  

On the eve of the Feast, the Jrakalouyts Divine Liturgy (the lighting of the lamps service) is celebrated in honor of the manifestation of Jesus as the Son of God (Theophany). 

The following day, the mystery of our Lord's baptism in the River Jordan is remembered in the ceremony of the Churorhnek, or the "Blessing of Water."
